    Default Musician's Gear hardshell case sale, concert and tenor $29

    FYI:

    Musician's Gear hardshell case sale, concert and tenor $29, free shipping.

    Build quality on these is better than the unbranded cheap shiney black ones direct from China on Ebay for around the same price.

    In my experience, these cases run a smidge big so they fit most everything. However you might need padding if your instrument runs small... For example, it was slightly deep for a Kanile'a tenor, but did not require padding and was perfectly adequate for the price!

    Thanks Tracie. I picked up a couple for "future use" since there's always something coming down the road! Happy New Year!

    Thanks for the tip! One of these will house my still in process Bonanza Homestead.

    I hope they've worked out the kinks on them. For my last uke I ordered two of these via Guitar Center and the storage compartment in the neck was mounted an inch too low so the body of my uke wouldn't fit in either one of them. I was really bummed because I really like these cases. I ended up ordering one of those Chinese cases off Ebay which I like as well and had to play musical chairs with my other ukes until they all had a case they would fit in.

    These definitely run larger than the Chinese Ebay cases. I'm sure the Bonanza Homestead will fit in this case but the Chinese Ebay case would be a gamble since they run smaller. This is a good price so the choice was pretty much a no-brainer!
    Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a uke which is basically the same thing.

    Ukes are a lot like potato chips. It's hard to stop with just one!

    Any idea which size would be best for a super concert?

    A super concert is a concert with a tenor scale? You may need to go with a tenor size for the length. Check the dimensions in the product descriptions to see what will accommodate your uke. I contacted their customer service and they said the given dimensions were the interior measurements to the inside edges of the padding. My concerts fit in the concert sized cases with no more than 1/4 to 1/2 inch to spare.

    The product description has measurements. My Enya Nova concert ukulele is longer than the size they give for their concert ukulele case.

    Thanks that's really helpful. It is a concert size with tenor neck, ap looks like tenor is the way to go!

    Check Mims for an extended neck concert hard case. She has them for extended neck (or 8-string) tenors, and I think she had one for an extended neck concert. Don't know if she still does.

    Thanks for that. I just ordered a concert case (open box) for $27.11 delivered.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!
